The little kitten is in drain between Taco Bell, McDonald's

Next earlier story on the little kitten: Little kitten trapped in storm sewer in Columbia, KY needs help

By Ed Waggener

We have more information on the little kitten trapped in the storm sewer, which is being fed by Tara Pickens. The grates for the storm sewer are on both sides of Jamestown Street near Gaston Avenue, between Taco Bell and McDonald's.

Because of the traffic noise during the day, it's difficult to hear, but Janet Shield, who works at Taco Bell, said she's heard in the last few days as she gets off work. Others, at McDonald's, have heard it as well, she said. That means that rescue workers may need to reconnoiter in the late evening to coax it out. Perhaps someone will be able to offer leadership and expertise for the rescue. - EW. 270-250-2730.

Little Kitten trapped in this area, imperiled by Isaac rains

2012-08-30 - 900 block Jamestown Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener.
Janet Shield called to say that she had heard the cries of the little kitten trapped in the storm sewer system in this area of Jamestown Street. She said the cries are most easily heard at night, when the traffic is not so heavy. She said that she had heard it when she got off work at nearby Taco Bell. Tara Pickens reported hearing it, and worries that it will not survive if there is a downpour, as predicted, from Hurricane Isaac aftermath.
